SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 (UPI) -- Tommy Hanson allowed three hits and struck out seven over seven innings Friday in lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 4-1 victory over San Francisco.
The Braves scored all their runs in the third and ended a two-game skid.
The Atlanta third inning began with a walk drawn by Nate McLouth off Madison Bumgarner (0-3) and McLouth went to second on Hanson's sacrifice.
Martin Prado also walked and Jason Heyward singled in McLouth with the first run of the inning. Chipper Jones followed with a two-run double and eventually scored on a single by Freddie Freeman.
